Jul 25 2002 / Thursday

New York photographer, Kenneth Capello, has beaten off intense competition
to win the highly acclaimed Etnies & Rankin Photo Challenge.
was among three other artists who were short listed to exhibit their work
at the Dazed & Confused Galleries, which opened to the public on June
13, 2002. Artists were briefed to submit shots using limited edition Etnies
Sal 23s (Sal Barbier's pro-model), to create a unique exhibition of photography
inspired by the creativity, essence and energy of the skateboarding culture.
Kenneth Capello’s winning work successfully portrayed the attitude
and vibrancy of skateboarding with integrity and insight, which was translated
through his raw photographic style. He has now been commissioned by Etnies
for their Spring 03 international advertising campaign for lifestyle publications,
including Dazed & Confused and Sleazenation.
The Etnies & Rankin Photo Challenge has been a phenomenal success, with
the launch night itself attracting models, media moguls and skaters alike.
Members of the rock band Placebo were among the photography enthusiasts
who were spotted at the galleries.
Exhibition judge, Rankin comments;
“It’s refreshing to see
a brand investing in young photographers in an open-minded way, and providing
a forum for experimentation. The collaboration between the photographers,
Etnies, and Dazed has resulted in a very irreverent and stimulating exhibition.
An exhibition with attitude.”
The Etnies and Rankin Photo Challenge exhibition can be viewed at the Dazed
and Confused Gallery. A full review of the exhibition can be found in the
August 2002 issue of Dazed
& Confused.
